My husband and I have been to Gamboa several times but this time we will be with the rest of the family--3 adults, 2 teenagers, and a school age child. I am in charge of all the planning--and paying, of course. We plan to visit Gamboa on Tuesday of Holy Week. The last time our taxi stopped at the bridge before the resort and negotiated with a boat for a tour around Gatun Lake to Monkey Island. It was cheaper than what the resort charges. This time we will be in our rental van and wandered if those boats are there all the time. Does anyone know if we can arrange this tour with a private owner beforehand?
I might look for a cheaper price on the boat but we always enjoyed the buffet lunch at the resort down along the Chagras River. It may be a little pricey but seems a good option with so many personal preferences. My thanks in advance.
